Tarsonemus waitei Banks, 1912

This mite is widely distributed in temperate and subtropical regions. It has been found associated with the flowers, leaves, bark, fruits and seeds of various plants. The main food appears to be fungi, but plant feeding might also be possible (Nucifora & Vacante, 2004).
